. today, vice president joe biden gave president obama his recommendations one day early on the task force. in a meeting with the house democrats, joe biden said he has identified 19 executive actions the president can take on gun control. president obama said he will release the details of those recommendations later this week. here is what the president had to say about gun control today. >> well, what you can count on is things i have said in the past, the belief that we have to have stronger background checks. that we can do a much better job in terms of keeping these magazine clips with high capacity out of the hands of folks who should not have them. and assault weapons, the ban is meaningful. those are things i continue to believe make sense. if there is a step we can take that will save even one child from what happened in newtown. we should take that step. >> richard wolff, the nra is a very strange operation. they have said that video games are a big problem in promoting violence in this country. and yesterday, the nra released a free app that we'll put up on the screen that allo

client grew up in an abusive environment. >>> vice president joe biden turned in his recommendations for new gun control measures today after he met with the gun control task force. some of the considerations are tighter back ground checks, ban on assault weapons. the president offered an update. >> my starting point is not to worry about the politics. my starting point is to focus on what makes sense. what works. what should we be doing to make sure our children are safe. and we are reducing gun violence. >> this debate comes one month after the sandy hook elementary school massacre. president obama hopes to unveil a road map for curving gun violence in days. >> jackie spear is calling on the president to act independently of congress. >> i recommend he do by executive action because i am not confident this congress is going going to have the guts to do what is right. >> she was one of 12 democrats who met with vice president joe biden this among discuss thew prevent gun violence. she survived being shot several times during a visit to giana 30 years ago. >>> san francisco's muni pa

[laughter] i'm very proud of them although i would be happy to claim as my this is a family affair. kids, grandkids, moms, dads. you all get it. you get what it is so important today. we still have 68,000 troops in harm's way in some of the most godforsaken territory in the world. one of the things that you all know -- they are not looking for anything. but knowing that you remember. that we back home remember, we know what is going on. this is an important piece of the equation. another important piece as they started the organiza
minute now to talk about the sweeping gun control advice that he's gotten from vice president joe biden's task force, what it means for the country and legislatively moving forward is anybody's guess, but we'll know in a couple of minutes. joining me in studio, alex wagner, host of msnbc's "now" and steve kornacki. what are you anticipating the president's going to come out with? we keep hearing big, keep hearing bold. >> it's bold in the context it's been two decades since any movement in gun control, the brady bill, five-day waiting period in '93, then you have to go back to 1968 for anything before that. >> guys, let's go ahead. there's vice president joe biden. let's listen to him. >> innocents that were murdered 33 days ago. our heart goes out to you. and you show incredible courage, incredible courage being here, and the president and i are going to do everything in our power to honor the memory of your children and your wives with the work we take up here today. it's been 33 days since the nation's heart was broken by the horrific, senseless violence that took place at sandy hook

even be making him stronger. today, vice president joe biden said the administration's going to continue to make gun safety a priority. >> i know you've come to talk about a broad range of very important, challenging issues that are facing each of your cities and towns. as important as they all are today we have a more urgent and immediate call. and that is how to deal with the epidemic of gun violence in america. >> jennifer: so even though the public is behind gun safety measures broadly there is still this little matter of getting legislation through congress. house republicans are for a fight. they very well might win. they still do control the house afterall. even if reasonable republicans support pragmatic gun measures, when those reasonable republicans stay quiet the extremists speak for the party. here's, for example representative steve stockman, responding to the president's press conference. >> if he thinks these bills are good, his law is good, he should go through congress. he's not a king. reminds me of saddam hussein when he used kids. >> jennifer: the question
president joe biden. again you can see the president's remarks here on c-span starting at 11:55 eastern. following that announcement we'll open our phone lines to get rea. gun violence will be the topic of a meeting this afternoon hosted by the staring meet. newtown connecticut school superintendent is among those who will speak along with the philadelphia mayor and natalie who is the son of gabe zimmerman who died in the 2011 two don, arizona shooting. house minority leader nancy pelosi is also scheduled to attend. that will be live this afternoon starting at 2:00 eastern here on c-span. on this morning's "washington journal," we were joined by house judiciary committee chair, bob goodlatte, who discussed the debate over guns laws. host: welcome back to the table, bob goodlatte, chairman of the house judiciary committee committee. thank you very much for talking to our viewers this morning. guest: thank you. good to be with you and the viewers. host: the president will speak at 11:45 and put forward what he would like to see happen on gun control. what are your thoughts? guest: first o
come to the table and be part of a comprehensive package. i'm sure joe biden will accept them and joe manchin will accept them and conservatives will accept them to come to the table. i'm sure their membership wants them to do it, not the survivalists or gun manufacturers who have made millions of dollars off the death of 6 and 7 year-olds, the truth. it's not too late. if they keep their feet in cement, they're going to be run over, not by joe biden, but these polls show, by middle america, by gun owners, by people that want to protect their children when they're at school, they want to protect their children at shopping malls, want to protect their children when they're in church, protect their children at movie theaters. this is middle america coming after you, nra, not a politician. >> the president is at the forefront and we have to lot to go through. president obama is reviewing a list of gun control items from joe biden. background checks and limits on assault and ammunition. during the-yesterday, problem talks about it. >> those that apologize gun control or measures have a pr
president joe biden who will meet with the connecticut governor promised mayors across the country yesterday that the administration is in it to win it for this fight. >> there's some who say the most powerful voice in this debate belongs to the gun lobbies and those who demand the stop to these common sense approaches to save lives. i think they're wrong. high capacity magazines don't have a practical sporting purpose or hunting purpose. as one hunter told me. if you've got 12 rounds, you've got 12 rounds, it means you've already missed the deer 11 times, you should pack the sucker in at that point. you don't deserve to have a gun period you're that bad. >> as the obama administration builds up for the legislative battle, a new poll shows 56% of americans favor stricter gun laws. and the same poll shows the national rifle association with a higher approval than hollywood. >> the nra's had some good days and bad days in this. and actually that depends on how you look at it. even when the nra has a bad day. and the media is calling them too aggressive. that's a good day for the nra, that usua
be the vice president, joe biden, but it looks like he's sort of overshadowed here by another -- somebody else with a claim, as well. hillary clinton. how do you think that shakes snout who has the claim to be the sort of successor candidate going forward? >> well, the nice thing is they both do. you have an heir and a spare. you have a two good back-ups. and let's take thomas jefferson, because the presidents who have done this in the past are ronald reagan, franklin roosevelt, abe lincoln and thomas jefferson. thomas jefferson hands off power to his secretary of state james madison. so, both secretaries of state historically and vice presidents have been plausible successors. >> you know, in your advice to the president to make sure his second term is a success and not a failure, like we have said, appoint a successor, you also say to go big with things like immigration reform. you tell him to campaign aggressively in 2014. unlike in 2010 against republicans. all of which you think might help but wouldn't lowering unemployment, bringing the economy to full recovery, balancing a budget, would
personal tragedy and is able to speak to that in an emotional compelling way as joe biden. going back to what you were saying about very little hope of this package or really much of anything, passing it is republican house. what do you think the white house strategy is? this was not having crafted to the political realities. it was what they actually wanted. was the idea to use it to show this is not going to pass the republican house because they are extreme and unwilling to bend and use that as leverage down the line and painting the gop in my opinion, painting them as extreme and unwilling to pend. >> they are taking great pains to be realm and they are looking at all aspects of the issue and mental health and video games. i do think that you are seeing a president who in all regards has become increasingly defiant and combative and taking his case out to the country and i think it's part narrative that obama is trying to tell about. i don't want to overstate the popularity of what the white house is is doing. the numbers have moved in the way of the gun control adkro voicates, bu
engineering more murders. and using joe biden to run the task force is like hiring osama bin laden to take care of our children. [ applause ] >> wow. >> stephanie: also herp derp -- >> stephanie: ermahgerd. >> oh we're going to down that rat hole again. >> stephanie: that's right. jim in florida you are on the "stephanie miller show." go ahead. >> caller: hi, stephanie. first off i think ted nugent would be able to recognize psychotic behavior. >> stephanie: yes. >> caller: yes he lives it. and have you heard about the new nra free download app for your iphone. it's a shooter where the targets are coffin shaped. >> they just released it. >> caller: yes. >> stephanie: wait a minute, i am confused you are shooting at coffins? >> caller: yes, the targets are coffin shaped. >> and you get to choose various assault rifles. >> stephanie: oh, okay. >> caller: yes and what i find most disturbing about that is not that the nra is full of gun-nut crazies, i mean we know that's their leadership and it's not that they have target practice, because we expect that. >> stephanie: yeah. >
. >> ed lavandera, austin, texas. thank you very much. >>> vice president joe biden's task force is recommending that gun trafficking be defined as a federal crime. according to politico, the white house has defined 19 executive actions where the president may act unilaterally. others are mulling these executive orders because of the difficulty in enacting new gun legislation in congress. president obama is expected to lay out his proposals formally next week. >>> the house is expected to debate on the second part of the disaster from superstorm sandy. lawmakers have been pushed for the $51 billion relief measure and conservative republicans have complained the price tag is too high and including spending that has nothing to do with the storm. >>> twisted metal and wrecked carriages. this was a scene in egypt overnight as a train derailed. railway officials say at least 19 people were killed, more than 100 people were injured. >>> about 150,000 children in new york city will have to find another way to get to school tomorrow? why? school bus drivers say they're going on strike. t

2011, the obama administration released through joe biden actually new federal guidelines on how i believe colleges should be responding to these kinds of allegations. and they included speeding up the investigation, offering the investigations or video to the local police, has that changed? do you know if that has been a significant driver of any difference here? >> you know it doesn't seem like it is. just today we learned that unc has a dean that recently retired, accused the school of basically forcing her to under -- misrepresent the number of sexual assaults on campus and say it was much lower than it was because they didn't want their school to look bad. i think what we're dealing with here, there is so much interest in putting up images, that simple little tweaks are not doing the job of getting things better.
for a meaningful assault weapons ban. vice president joe biden, he met with him today, also with the house democrats to get their input. but other congressional members say they don't believe any gun control bill will pass. really? senators kelly ayotte, also chuck grassley and angus king all say they're just willing to listen. and representative phil gingrey of georgia agrees. now, these are the people who get to vote on any kind of gun measure. but they're just waiting around, waiting to be impressed i guess with what somebody is going to show up with. senator john mccain took it a step further, saying congress should not and will not vote on an assault weapons ban. isn't that encouraging? he thinks it's just not going to happen. so why go ahead and bother. you mean to tell me we can't even go back to where we were? senator joe manchin of west virginia went on cnn to talk about bipartisanship yesterday. he ended up taking a totally partisan stance on an assault weapons ban. >> just get a yes or no possibly. an assault weapons stand alone ban. >> a assault weapons ban, on just guns alone
states is somehow the equivalent of hitler for asking joe biden to lead a task force on gun violence. this was a recently constructed home page on the drudge report, which was vocalized vaingloriously by this gentleman. >> hitler took the guns. stalin took the guns. mao took the guns. fidel castro took the guns. i'm here to tell you 1776 will commence again if you try to take our firearms. >> unfortunately, messrs. lapierre and jones are being historically inaccurate. the suggestion that hitler promoted gun control is actually pretty wide of the mark. in fact, gun control was forcibly imposed upon germany following the treaty of versailles after the first world war. in 1919 the reichstag inacted regulations that asserted that all firearms as well as all kinds of fire ammunition are to be surrendered immediately. thereafter the german government began to liberalize these laws. in 1928 the law explicitly revervoked the 1919 law. and then in 1938 hitler and the nazis produced new law that is really loosened the regulation. the weapons law of march 18, 1938, completely deregulated the ac
at sandy hook. joe biden addressed the u.s. conference of mayors just this afternoon. >> in newtown some of those children were riddled with as many -- it's hard to even say it -- 11 bullet holes in a first grader. high capacity magazines in our view are not worth the risk. >> but you try telling that to the congress that would have to pass the legislation. republican responses have already ranged from i don't think so to impeach him. >> the president, he just doesn't have the guts to admit it, is not a believer in the second amendment. >> i'm afraid president obama may have a king complex. >> he's already abused the law enough times that it's just been staggering. the american revolution was all about fighting such a monarchy. >> we want all tools available to use, including that impeachment. >> with that kind of congressional opposition to the president, it was no sweat for nra president david keene to dismiss the president's initiatives as nothing but a grab bag of liberal feel-goodies. >> this is all sort of makes you feel good, but, in fact, it doesn't do much. >> he's confident say

with the nra, as you know, joe biden did, and the nra brought up the fact that prosecutions for gun crimes and prosecutions for people who fill out -- lie on their registration forms or gun forms are down under this administration, and the vice president responded, we don't have time to devote to seeing whether people fill out a form right. well, wait a minute. they're asking for more forms and they're saying they don't have the time to fill out -- to check -- are they serious about this or is this just about politics? >> well, first of all, let's be clear about why there has been fewer enforcements, and the head of the atf feels there's been a failure to confirm because the nra has objected and they have objected to reasonable pragmatic solutions, and that's what this is all about. this is not about taking people's guns away. it's about a narrow set of proposals that will enable us to help enforce the existing gun laws, the ban on assault weapons and a ban on high-capacity magazines and even a ban on armor-piercing bullets are overwhelmingly supported by the citizenry. 50% of men, 57% --
at other stories today that don't involve lance armstrong. >> thanks very much. >>> vice president joe biden is sharing his gun task force finding wells president obama. the vice president reportedly recommends background checks on all gun sales, some assault weapons ban and keeping guns way from the mentally ill. president obama taking on pro gun groups saying they're using fear to sell more firearms. >> we've seen for some time now that those who oppose any common sense gun control or gun safety measures have pretty effective way of ginning up fear on the part of gun owners that somehow the federal government's about to take all your guns away. >> president obama is expected to formally lay out his gun control proposals later this week. >>> a freshman republican in congress is not happy about the idea of president obama issuing executive orders on gun control and threatening to impeach the president if he does so. representative steve stockman from texas said "i will seek to thwart this action by any means necessary including but not limited to eliminating funding for implementation,
officials carrying guns. >>> on that topic, vice president joe biden met with house members and cabinet officials today. preparing to give the president his task force's recommendations on how to reduce gun violence. cnn white house correspondent dan lothian join us live now. dan. >> and the vice president ao met with the president today. they went other some proposals. the president saying that later in the week, he'll be outlining some specifics about watt administration needs to do. there will be no doubt, some resistance to what the president will be offering. but the president says that he is not worried about the politics. president obama says he's already reviewing the vice president's recommendations aimed at tackling gun violence. while some may require congressional approval. >> how we are gathering data, for example, on guns that fall into the hands of criminals. and how we track that more effectively. there may be some steps that we can take administratively as opposed to through legislation. >> reporter: strong resistance to executive orders from some gun right advocates wh
the president already said that joe biden, the vice president's task force says he's gotten a list of recommendations. we expect that there are going to be more specifics coming out later in the week. but there are two things that he seemed to indicate that he could do by executive order. and that is, one, try to track those guns that get in the hands of criminals or those who are mentally unstable. that there's some way that he can do that. and the other thing is really just making sure that the existing rules on the books are better enforced. i image that's probably good news for folks in that town, in newtown, and others who have been pushing that. >> and not just for the folks in newtown, but really all across america. one of the things you hear when gun control advocates speak, and that is that 33 people, on average, are killed by guns in the united states every day. and while the president was speaking, first of all, he said that he is planning on meeting with vice president biden later on this afternoon, just to go over some of the things that have been discussed. they'll ha
be legislation. we know there will be 19 separate executive orders that joe biden the vice president has proposed to the president and he'll be culling through those and unveiling those. one thing to be discussed is armed security in public schools. here at this elementary school they have them underway. in fact the idea the notion to do it at the 14 schools in this district actually originated before the sandy hook tragedy now more than a month ago in newtown, connecticut. we talked to the mayor about this yesterday writ is indeed apparently a warmly received idea and policy with perhaps only one exception, listen. >> i believe there was only maybe one family that felt that that was the wrong decision. the others certainly agreed with that. butler school district has over 8,000 students, so i think they feel confident that, you know, that butler is taking the steps to protect the children as much as that is humanly possible. >> reporter: and when you consider that there are some almost 500 school district in pennsylvania and well over a hundred have had or are now implementing some sort of armed
at happening now those questions. jon: sounds good. heather touched on it. vice president joe biden presents his plan to curb gun violence to president obama tomorrow. one city is apparently not waiting around for washington act. chicago quickly becoming ground zero in the debate on gun control. that city saw more than 500 murders last year, prompting mayor rahm emanuel to take action with a gun control plan of his own. steve brown is live in chicago right now, but i guess mayor emanuel is not. he is in d.c. today suggesting democratic strategy to try to get gun control accomplished, is that right, steve? >> reporter: in a sense yes, it was part of the discussion at a public revent held in washington that mayor emanuel took part in. local press was made aware of it well in advance. it touches on the city's most dramatic problem which is gun violence in this city. you mentioned over 500 homicides. just this past weekend, three more homicides, two of them teachers, all gun related. emanuel suggested in the d.c. forum the best course of action for greater gun control measures is to force the ho
be that that worked out very well. >> now, interesting. the vice-president, joe biden, was sworn in several hours before the president over at his official residence. we're told that's because he was sworn in by justice sonia sotomayor. she needed to get to a book signing for her memoir in new york city. she had to catch a train. right beforinstead of doing it n residence, he did it just after 8 a.m. eastern time. justice so toe towe were told ty was wearing reed krakoff. i don't know anything about that. real quick here, ed. i read interesting trivia were. george washington during his second inaugural address spoke for just a short time. the shortest ever, 135 words, and that's it. do you think we'll be around that tomorrow or what do you think? >> reporter: the president's critics probably hope it will be that short. what i've been told by administration officials, probably mor more in the range 5 to 20 minutes which is shorter than some of his other speeches, by the way, back dooring the campaign. they realize it's an important tomorrow, not going to be as short as george washington, of course
with boehner and obama and reid and joe biden sit down. >> no, they're going to agree how much are we going to cut and then the policy people are going to see where and how. that's how it goes in washington. >> before you get to washington, how do you dweel patient demand? you have all of these new machines and technology. you go in, you're a reasonably healthy person. you say, hey, i want to use the new machine that gives you an echo cardiogram. the doctor says, no, you're fine, and you get one. >> there are two, mike, i think that's a great question. two issues there. where do patients get these ideas and why do they do it? in part, doctors are fuelling that and drive down the new jersey turnpike, what do you see? hospital after hospital. we've got cyber knife. the robot. this. we're fuelling patients demand. the second thing -- >> what does the di vinci robot do? >> i'm sure you don't. it's the four arm robot that does prostate surgery. >> those guys actually don't like me because i keep saying this. it costs about 4 or 5,000 more per surgery. for a surgeon to get really good at it, requ
